As a summary, to anyone about that redigi case, those books are not part of the licensing scheme (like any software in general), there is no EULA, or any contract-related stuff attached to it, therefore the book is SOLD, not LICENSED, thus the IA DID NOT give up its fair use rights.
The IA is well-aware of what is a license, and wouldn't dare to sign any contract of any kind that will take away the legal ability libraries do.
